Crouzon Syndrome: a Comprehensive Review

Crouzon Syndrome: a Comprehensive Review SummaryCrouzon syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with autosomal dominant inheritance. The underlying pathological process is premature synostosis of the cranial sutures with subsequent phenotypic alterations of the affected person. A review of the literature has been conducted in order to resume the overall characteristics of Crouzon syndrome such as craniomaxillofacial malformations, clinical features, dentoalveolar characteristics, aesthetic impairments, and psychological background, as well as, the different therapeutic procedures, which combine surgical and orthodontic interventions. Facial and functional malformations in individuals with Crouzon syndrome could be significantly improved after a series of surgical and orthodontic procedures in almost all cases. A multidisciplinary treatment approach would provide the best outcomes in affected patients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Balkan Journal of Dental Medicine de Gruyter

Abstract

SummaryCrouzon syndrome is a rare genetic disorder with autosomal dominant inheritance. The underlying pathological process is premature synostosis of the cranial sutures with subsequent phenotypic alterations of the affected person. A review of the literature has been conducted in order to resume the overall characteristics of Crouzon syndrome such as craniomaxillofacial malformations, clinical features, dentoalveolar characteristics, aesthetic impairments, and psychological background, as well as, the different therapeutic procedures, which combine surgical and orthodontic interventions. Facial and functional malformations in individuals with Crouzon syndrome could be significantly improved after a series of surgical and orthodontic procedures in almost all cases. A multidisciplinary treatment approach would provide the best outcomes in affected patients.
